Dr Dwight Turner is a  psychotherapist, senior lecturer and researcher at School of Applied Social Science at Brighton University. His most recent blog - “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos” for BME Voices Talk Mental Health – addressed the anguish and the action that has risen from the latest public murder of a Black man, George Floyd in Minneapolis, and has been very widely read by UK and US therapists.

Here he speaks about being a Black man and a Black therapist; of racism being a problem of Whiteness rather than a Black problem; and the legacy of centuries of racism that remains largely unaddressed within our professions.
